How to be a pro at online Chess

Find some service that allows you to play online against people. This trick doesn't work very well in real life. 1. Open the chess game on your computer, and set the difficulty to max. 2. Find a game online against someone, and make sure your opponent goes first. 3. Mimic whatever move the opponent makes on the local game you have open. 4. Whatever move the max difficulty AI makes is the move you use against your online opponent. 5. ??? 7. PROFIT By simply acting as a rudimentary catalyst, you gain the power of a maximum difficulty computer A.I. without even knowing anything about chess! You only need to be able to interpret moves in reverse to accurately mimic them between the games*. *=Your local Chess game against the computer is supposed to be from the view of your opponent since you're mimicking his moves. Because of this, the pieces will move in the opposite directions.

  • [quote][b]Posted by:[/b] ultratog1028 If this does not make the epic threads of the flood thread, a great injustice will have occurred.[/quote] It's not [i]that[/i] original of an idea, nor is it as elaborate as it could be. I know of an incident that occured on two very popular [url=http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Go_(board_game)]Go[/url] servers where a user created accounts on both servers and challenged strong players from both servers to matches. He would make sure that he was playing black on one server, and white on the other server, and essentially played these two strong players from different servers against each other. He would win some and lose some, but still, he had a 50% win percentage on both accounts against some of the best players on the server and had a high rank at a result. Supposedly it went on for a while until someone who had multiple servers open noticed that he was effectively watching the same game and brought it up to the admins from both servers who collaborated to ban him.

Still win though.[/quote] I'm not sure what Chess program you are using, but hypothetically should be able to set the computer to play either white or black based upon what your matchup requires on the online server. It shouldn't matter if you are going first or not in the match as a result.[/quote] oh yea that does make sense now that you mention it.

  • This is such a brilliant troll. Mean, but brilliant. PS: It'll work if you're playing white as well--either follow the computer's opening package, or open with something fairly standard, like D4 or E4, and then let the computer take over.

  • -.- I knew about this for a few years now, but I never bothered to try it. Seems like instant-doom for a person who is actually playing fairly. Besides, you don't learn much, which is the whole point, so when I go to actual tournaments it wouldn't have helped me. But since this comment is going to get a lot of hate I will give this thread a 10/10
